You know that well-intentioned phrase that people say all the time, the one that goes God will never give you more than you can handle?
I hate it. I think it is such a load of utter crap.
I can’t handle my sin nature and depravity. I can’t handle death and devastation. I can’t handle pain and letdowns and rejection and broken relationships and the monstrosities of this current age.
Praise God for the cross of Jesus Christ. He can handle it all for me.
If God never gave us more than we could handle, then why would we ever turn to Him?
His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection proved He can handle anything and everything. So I don’t dare say any ridiculous, silly phrase like He will never give you more than you can handle because I know that I am weak but He is strong. Amen and amen.
